June 5th is National Running day! Are you getting some miles in?

(Also, Rock 'n Roll marathons and half marathons are $20 off if you register today. Woo hoo!)

Wore running shoes today (with my suit).
We are having a 5K that is being held by all the running clubs and running shops in the area. Its down on our river park area. Should be fun if the rain holds off. If not it will be fun and wet! grin

It's National Running Day? I wish I knew in advance. I've run the last two mornings, so today I went to the gym for weights.

Today is also a lifting day for me, and I'm off running until my race Saturday now anyway! I was unaware there was any sort of day for this, it was not on the event calendar in June's Runner's World, I was just reading it last night! They've betrayed me.

I don't take lunches, and my running shoes are at home (2 block away)! I can find excuses to counter your options, all day long!

If I run later, it'll most likely be a run-on sentence. I run on running days, not on other days. I like my routines and I don't like compromises! laugh Maybe we'll go on a walk tonight after dinner though, and I can fit a brief trot in there, even if it means stopping to tie my shoe, then jogging to catch up. Deal?

I ran a quick mile after my Insanity class at lunchtime today. So I got a run in, even though it was a short one!

I walk briskly to and from the light rail platform and home/work. Running is hard on my knees.

Will it count if I run to my car from the office to minimize the amount of rain hitting me?

If your car is at least a half mile from your office, yes. laugh

Or if you run completely around the storm to minimize getting wet. wink

if you aren't racing until saturday, why the 3 days off leading up to it? never lay off when a race is coming, you can decrease your mileage and speed, but you should be training until the day of the race

I disagree...for a big race I take the two days before off from running (I do yoga or stretch). For smaller races (like 5ks) I rest the day before. But, I don't take 3...ever.

Duathlons and and 1/2's I take two off. 5K's where I'm going for a PR, the day before. For the Death Valley Ultramarathon Deathrace...? So far, 56 years. laugh

Well, I did weights as normal today, according to my schedule, so it's not an "off" day, just not one I ever run on.

Tomorrow will be an off day in prep for the race, as will Friday. I'll likely just do a mile or two jog and stretch. It's a new distance for me, seven miles. We'll see how it goes! Only done one 8k, and everything else has been 5k's (dozens), as far as actual road races go.

I ran 10K today as a last practice run before my first 10K race Saturday, but tomorrow I'll sleep an extra hour and skip my run. I'm having trouble with pace. I go too slow at the start, and at the end I feel like I still have some gas in the tank. In the 5k races, I do the opposite: start too fast.

It was a nice cool morning. Great day to run.

I did 3 easy miles with one of my runner girls last night. We started in a light rain and finished in the blazing sun. Gotta love Missouri weather.
